Legendary striker Dimitar Berbatov is predicting a comfortable winner when West Ham United take on Arsenal tomorrow.
Arsenal star may inadvertently push linked striker to West Ham
West Ham take on Mikel Arteta’s improving Arsenal in what has become a huge game in the race for Europe.
West Ham can go level on points with fourth-placed Chelsea with a victory over the Gunners.
West Ham can go joint fourth with win over Arsenal
And David Moyes’s side could put a five and six point gap between them and the chasing pack depending on results elsewhere.
A win for Arsenal at the London Stadium could also reignite their European ambitions.
West Ham will be boosted by the return of Jesse Lingard for the clash but Pablo Fornals looks set to miss out.
Arsenal have doubts over the brilliant Bukayo Saka and Willian too.
Everything points to a good game and West Ham vs Arsenal rarely disappoints in terms of entertainment and goals.
Berba backs comfortable winner when Hammers take on Gunners and backs Champions League push
Speaking to The Metro ahead of the game, former Premier League striker Dimitar Berbatov delivered his verdict.
And the Bulgarian legend is backing West Ham to win comfortably 2-0 while also backing their Champions League chances.
“This is going to be a good game,” Berbatov told The Metro.
“I don’t remember the last time West Ham were above Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool. They are having a great season and they have surprised everybody.
“I don’t know if they have admitted it yet, but they will be thinking about Champions League football, which is certainly achievable.
“This game is definitely winnable for them too, we all know how shaky Arsenal can be at times, yes they won against Spurs but their defence cracks and makes stupid mistakes at times. I can see West Ham getting a result and pushing for top four.”
Revenge mission for Moyes after harsh results in previous two meetings
Hammers fans will be desperately hoping Berbatov is right.
Arsenal fans will point out he used to play for their bitter rivals Spurs.
West Ham go into the game feeling like they owe the Gunners one.
West Ham dominated the previous two Premier League games against Arsenal but came away desperately unfortunate to somehow lose both.
Now would be the perfect time for a spot of revenge.
